I saw this knit fabric on clearance and thought it’d be perfect to use for a pattern I found awhile back. I’ve had a hard time finding cute knit fabric in local stores.
Link to the free pattern I used: http://www.crafterhoursblog.com/2012/05/racerback-dress-tutorial-pdf-pattern.html (sizes 12mo -8).
Turned out pretty good, wish I could have found a different color rib knit, but my local stores don’t have much of a selection. I changed up the way I sewed the dress and ended up having to cut off about 3 inches of rib knit from the length she recommended in order to get it to fit right, and even then it’s not perfect. Hope the girls like them!
